Dessert
At Coro we believe chocolate should be a fun and sharing experience. We don’t claim to be master chocolatiers, in fact its quite the opposite. Our aim is to give customers their chocolate fix but not just from your standard bar of chocolate. We pour our chocolate over freshly made pancakes, into our buttery crepes and drizzled onto of our fluffy waffles. If thats not enough we’ll give you a fondue to dunk some fresh fruit, cake or sweets into melted chocolate with a hot chocolate like no other to wash it all down.

Exactly what it says on the sign! The chocolate orange cheesecake is better that you think it would be, the bubble waffles are also highly recommended.

The menu had a wide variety of options to chose from and they even had everything organised,,the table was cleaned very well and the staff were very professional in their approach. That was my 4th time coming because I really enjoy it there. I found it very relaxing and the service was very fast. I had the caramel digestive and I would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to go to coro and it is a good price for what you get with the option of having ice cream with it is always really good. I always feel like I’m at home whenever I am at coro and the staff are all really nice and they are also really helpful if you have a problem with anything. I like the way that everything is layed out in the cafe. The thing is you will also need a bottle of water because at some points mainly by the end of the food it can get sickly but if you have any water on the table then that shouldn’t be too bad. In conclusion,, I really enjoyed it and I would recommend it to anyone but I would ask people to get some water in store.

Crazy over priced. Like shocked that they charged £14.99 for the tiniest fondue. Husband had bacon egg pancakes Served on a tiny slate. Eggs were chewy/overdone and bacon so crispy it was dusty and dry. Love the idea/the amount of choice. But £30 later and no one was satisfied

Really tasty food with great service. Setting is quite noisy, lots of clattering of cutlery when we were in. I would go back though

Waffles were really nice but the fruit for my sons fondue was past its best. We were charged 10% service charge for a table of 2 adults and 3 children, I don't mind paying this however we were left with halve of our plates for a long time, no one asked if we wanted teas or coffees and we had to flag down the waitress to ask for the bill. Again not a problem but to be charged 10% for good service I didn't feel was valid on this occasion.

It didn’t feel particularly safe. I’m told hand sanitizer was available but I didn’t see it.
The tables were crowded together. Despite having booked a table we had to wait for ten minutes for one to become available, in an area where there was no social distancing at all.
The food was OK, but it didn’t taste as good as it looked. Overall I was really disappointed.

Very nice food and drink and reasonably priced. Some guests quite loud. Toilets not the cleanest. Staff were good with us but one customer with a child had to get their own colouring crayons

We all really enjoyed the food, especially the kids. The service was much faster than previous visits. The place could do with a bit of a tidy up though.

Nice relaxed cafe with pleasant staff. Pancakes were lovely but would have preferred choice of 2/3 rather than having 4. Four was too many and difficult to finish especially for kids, is a waste when you are paying alot for them. Good variety on menu

We booked a table for 21:00 for some dessert - we were aware that the restaurant closed at 22:00. When we walked in, not a single member of staff greeted us at the door - we stood for 10 minutes and nobody approached us. Unfortunately we decided to leave because we didn’t get a friendly atmosphere. I understand that times are busy at the moment, but a simple ‘hello’ would have been nice. I’ve been before during the day and the food is amazing but I was disappointed that this time just wasn’t good.

Great sweet treats which were far too much for us - eyes bigger than stomach... The cafe generally could do with an upgrade as it looks a bit tired.

Went with my boyfriend and thought the desserts looked amazing. As we got there it was awkwardly quiet and three staff were not doing much but hovering or chatting to each other. The menus were super sticky and obviously not cleaned - which is a little worrying due to the pandemic. Some of the food was overpriced for what it was or it’s quantity. The hot chocolates we had were okay, but I wouldn’t recommend. I ordered a fondue for 1 and my bf ordered a cookie. The fondue came with a tiny pot of Nutella, not heated or anything like a fondue. Because of the scarce amount I couldn’t have 3/4 of my fruit with it as there was simply not enough. My boyfriends cookie was good, but tiny for price... We had to stand up and pay as all 3 staff weren’t very attentive. It was £20 for two small drinks, a small “fondue” and a tiny cookie. Overall wasn’t a great place or experience sadly. Would definitely not recommend.

Sat through the back where we seemed to be forgotten, in an area that looked like it should have been a storeroom.

Service was not great.
